When your society seems to have gone mad with wicked depraved ideas, you are being challenged to make choices. Will you allow yourself to be herded like sheep to the slaughter? Will you go with the flow and take your family by the seemingly easy path into the net of destruction? Or will you gather the courage to seek out the truth that will set you free no matter what the cost?
I have no doubt that all of us are being motivated to pray for God’s help in our perplexing times of need. But are we praying in fear or in faith?
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Victory over destructive influences in life?
Character qualities that glorify God?
Greater insight for success in your own journey?
Optimal physical well being and health?
Freedom to use your gifts most effectively?
Greater impact and influence on the world around you?

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Proverbs 1:5, 7
One of my best lessons I ever learned…
“My people are destroyed from a lack of knowledge.”
“Through knowledge the righteous are delivered.”
“… if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
What is the primary way that God gives His wisdom to those who ask of Him?
